An interesting find ! Google App Engine with Java support


I was just going through, and just find a link titled “App Engine”. I was not at all surprised as they do this every time. With Google something is new every time. I went on reading. Oh God! Free J2EE app engine where we can host our archives ! This is one of the coolest things I was waiting to happen. The server where I hosted (and I’m still with them) my website does not have Java support and I spend many hours in writing Php codes after many hours of searching and testing, which I could have done in minutes with Java. And most importantly it’s almost FREE ! We have to pay them only if we are crossing the specified bandwidth & page view limits.

We can write code with Google’s Eclipse plug-in (with GWT support !), test them with in Eclipse and deploy them from Eclipse! Isn’t that cool? All you need is to have a Google account and just get it done. We can have up to nine applications each with a unique URL to access and we can even link them with our Google Apps too.

  • For me this is nicest offer from Google in the recent times. I don’t know whether all of you are going to agree with this. But at least I’m happy. Hope all of you will find it nice.
